On a dull day, both in terms of weather and what was going on, these chaps and their mates discovered their own form of art appreciation. They took it very seriously, stepping back, making appreciative noises, comparing merits against other portraits. It made for a fun observation.
When it first appeared, I shared a video showing one woman undergoing " ten iconic hairstyles and makeup looks over the course of 100 years" You can see that here.
Not instantly obviously museum related - but pretty interesting given some of the responses I've seen to period artwork and clothing on display. As we look back on what was fashionable in previous years, it can be strange to appreciate what was deemed beautiful in another time.
They have now created a second video showcasing other styles, and if you click read more, there's an ace comparison of the two side by side.

The above email is greatly simplified, but the "reply" pretty much covers the facts. We get a lot of requests, and where appropriate we do try to cater for them. Usually people do make the request prior to advertising their event though.
Now engaging tactful mode to have a potentially complicated conversation, which will possibly upset someone well intentioned but overly hasty.
A toddler who has grasped the idea that Christmas means ripping wrapping paper off of boxes, came into his own private heaven when faced with a Christmas tree piled high with gifts. The presents were all empty boxes wrapped for display, but when your priority is just ripping paper, that's no matter!
The lack of posting is thanks to a very very busy time in work, but I do plan some cartoons for you soon!
Expect an adorable child devastating Christmas, the further tales of what happened when the Army visited for the day, blokes engaging with art, and unexpected chocolate.
Meanwhile, have a reccy on my other channels of communication for links, classic cartoons and other things!
